I survived Barrens Chat.
Ahh if you played horde side on any server then you know the joy of Barrens Chat. The joy of such wisdom, as “Your mother is a tranny whore”, or ” Go F*$k Yourself!” I think it was Westfall that was so much fun for Alliance side. But Barrens Chat is legendary in fact there’s a Tshirt.
Oh WAR had some really good gems, but now it seems Aion is keeping up the tradition. As I read my guildies playing Aion tell me that the general chat is horrendous. I read Frank’s Post about it.
Is this something new though? Are we ever going to have a game where the general chat isn’t filled with Anal [Whatever], We ever going to log on and discuss the discourses of Socrates, and it’s real world applications of today, No I really don’t think so.
I don’t think there’s much you can do but to turn it off, and to be honest sometimes I find it funny it so over the top, but for now I think Penny Arcade summed it up best.
Normal Person + Anonymity + Audience = Total Dickwad.
